This is a great recipe as is (although the amount of salt called for does seem too little), but also great for tinkering to personalize to your own taste. So, as many others have done, I put my own spin on this. I had milk I didn't want to waste, so I used that instead of water. I upped the salt to 1 teaspoon, substituted butter for the oil, used equal amounts of whole wheat and bread flour, and added 1 T. of vital gluten for good measure! Many reviewers increased the honey to 1/4 cup, but I found the 3 tablespoons to be perfect. For those who choose to stick to the recipe as written, I suggest you at least increase the salt to 1 teaspoon. This is just a great loaf of bread - moist and tender crumb, beautiful color and simply delicious.
